Derrick Mueller: President
Derrick combines stand up comedy, humorous insight, and inspirational reflection, in a variety show style. He is a master Prop comedian and story teller. He has been influenced by the story telling comedy of Bill Cosby, the antics of Robin Williams, the facial expressions of Jim Carey, the humor of Corner Gas, the energy of the Three stooges, the hilarity of Tool time, and the family values of Seventh Heaven. The comedy show is a living script that evolves with each performance. The stage comes alive as each prop is a trigger for a story, sketch or drama. In his unique tactile style, Mueller acts as a human computer mouse, turning every object he touches into a virtual reality session.
